Contact Lens Exams & Fittings

While most bespectacled people have at least considered contact lenses at some point, some may have not had success with them because their eyes are “hard to fit”.

At Hayden Optometric, we take the time to find the right contact lenses for almost anyone who wants them. Whether you need specialty contact lenses, or just want to find a more comfortable pair, our eye care team is here to help.

Finding the Right Contacts for Your Needs

What Is a Contact Lens Exam?

Contact lens exams are a little bit different from regular eye exams. While the standard eye exam looks at your vision and overall eye health, contact lens exams are specially designed to identify any possible conditions that might disqualify you as a candidate for contact lenses.

We’ll also use the exam as a chance to determine your contact lens prescription, which is different from your glasses prescription.

Your eyes are as unique as your fingerprints. There is no one-size-fits-all contact lens, so we need to measure your eyes to help us find the right fit. We’ll use advanced tools, giving very precise measurements, to inform us which contact lenses we should recommend for you.

Now that we know your prescription and measurements, we can start trying out contact lenses. We’ll give you a pair of contacts to take home and wear for a few days. If they feel comfortable and work properly, we’ll write up a prescription for you. If not, don’t be discouraged! We’ll keep trying different styles and brands of lenses until we find the ones that are right for you.

Unique & Specialty Contact Lenses


Orthokeratology or ortho-k is a treatment that uses rigid, gas permeable contact lenses to correct refractive errors overnight.

Every night before bed, you insert the lenses. As you sleep, the lenses reshape your corneas, correcting your refractive error. In the morning, you take the lenses out and go about your day without relying on glasses or contacts for clear vision.

To reverse the treatment, all you have to do is stop wearing the ortho-k lenses at night. Your corneas will eventually revert to their natural shape.

Ortho-k is often used as a method of myopia control to help reduce the progression of myopia in children.

Where standard soft contact lenses cover just the corneas, scleral lenses also cover the sclera, or white part of the eye.

Because the lenses are larger, they offer more stability as well as a comfortable fit for patients with “hard-to-fit-eyes.” Scleral lenses are often popular among patients with dry eye disease, with the lenses acting like a reservoir, holding moisture against the eye.
